How do I create a poll on Facebook?

From here:
How do I create a poll from my News Feed or timeline?
To create a poll from your News Feed or timeline:
  • At the top of your News Feed or timeline, click Make Post, then click .
  • Click Poll, then type the question you want to ask.
  • In the boxes with Option 1 and Option 2, enter the options for your poll. You can type up to 25 characters for each option.
  • Click or to add a photo or GIF to your options.
  • Click 1 week to choose when you want your poll to end.
  • Click Post.
Once you share your poll, it can be viewed on your timeline and in News Feed.
The only problem is, there's no 'Make Post' on the page. If I choose Create Post, there is no option to create a poll.

So how do I do it?

Looks like Facebook isn't doing polls for personal pages anymore. I see I can still make them in groups I am in, but not on my personal feed or on a page.

Facebook features change pretty rapidly, and even sometimes they test features by releasing them to some people but not others. So you can't always rely on help articles to accurately describe what is available to do on Facebook on any given day.
